On 26 February 2022, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) approved Uniting (NSW.ACT)'s (Uniting) application for an individual exemption from the requirement to hold a retailer authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law at Uniting Bowden Brae, Normanhurst, New South Wales.
On 29 October 2021, the AER accepted Uniting's application for an individual exemption from the requirement to hold a retailer authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law at Uniting Bowden Brae, 9 Frith Avenue. Normanhurst, NSW.
Submissions from interested stakeholders on Uniting's application closed 26 November 2021. No submissions were received.
Proposed variation of conditions
Exemptions relating to the sale of energy to residential customers have conditions concerning customers who are experiencing financial difficulty due to hardship. In July 2022 the AER released its revised Retail Exempt Selling Guideline (v6), to include a hardship policy condition. Retail exemption holders that sell energy to residential customers must now provide a hardship policy to residential customers that identify themselves as experiencing financial difficulty due to hardship.
The AER intends to extend this condition to all existing relevant individual exemptions that were approved before July 2022.
Invitation for submissions
We are now seeking submissions from interested stakeholders on the variation of Uniting (NSW.ACT)'s exemption by Thursday 8 June 2023.
